               Help us to be always hopeful
            gardeners of the spirit
            who know that without darkness
            nothing comes to birth
            as without light
            nothing flowers.

                     - May Sarton

            I believe there is a uniqueness in each of us that, when allowed to flourish, brings forth the gift that we have to offer. In individual and relationship therapy, and in teaching and mentoring writers, my mission is to encourage and draw out this gift, fostering our native capacity for living a life of depth and delight. The darkness of not knowing precedes the birth of something new, and the light of positive regard and grounded hope makes possible the blossoming into the whole person we are meant to be.
